A series of short sessions will include:
CrossTech Hubble Conference at 11.00 on 22 November, hosted by Haydon Bartlett-Tasker of CrossTech.

Attending the event will give you exposure to:

• A chance to meet the wider Hubble Network Rail community;
• Exclusive access to Hubble's capabilities to be released next year;
• There is also a chance to hear from some exciting tech companies in adjacent sectors.
Sustainable Supply Chain drop-in one-to-one consultations between 12.00 and 14.00 on 22 November, hosted by Mark Wood of APS and Denise Taylor of Wylde Connections
Sustainability is a hot topic not just in rail but across all business sectors. With the growing urgency to address climate change issues sustainability is about much more than just carbon reduction; from understanding global mega trends to getting to grips with how everything is interconnected through to developing your own sustainability plans for your business. APS and Wylde Connections have deep experience in this field and will be available to chat informally to companies and to provide a short free introductory consultation to help business managers begin to get to grips with this important issue. Consultations will last around 15 minutes on a one-to-one basis.
Rail Cybersecurity: The Good The Bad and The Ugly at 11.00 23 November, hosted by Evan Jones of CompleteCyber
Complete Cyber will deliver an overview of the impact of regulation NIS-D and facilitation of progress on the Cyber Assurance Framework adoption by the Railway. We will also provide a brief overview of what is still lacking in Rail, how train operators and suppliers can work together to address these gaps, as well as touching on emerging technologies that are impacting the rail industry.
Announcing the sessions, Rail Forum Chief Executive Elaine Clark said: 'The Rail Forum is delighted to continue our longstanding relationship with Modern Railways with the launch of their new two-day Modern Railways EXPO 2022 in Milton Keynes. The event looks set to offer something for everyone regardless of which part of the industry you are from and we will be running some specific activities alongside the show. We look forward to catching up with many colleagues from across the industry over the two days.'
